Product Review: Held Wet Tour jacket (£84.99)

What’s good about the Held Wet Tour?

All I ever really wanted is an unlined summer waterproof jacket that a) fits comfortably over leathers, is b) breathable, c) wraps up to neatly to nearly nothing and is d) actually waterproof, not nearly waterproof. This, for 85 quid, emphatically manages a) to d) and has been my constant companion all summer. It also has a hood zipped into its collar and its own carry net.

And what’s not?

The fluoro yellow is intense but picks up dirt easily. Just one summer old it looks like a London courier's million-mile jacket already (it’s also available in grey).
